  1. I have a couple of tools that use the 18v nicd batteries and the batteries need to be replaced. Well I have a dewalt 20v grease gun that uses the 20v lithium battery. So I figured I would get an 18v to 20v adapter to be able to use that 20v battery in the other tools. I have the DCB200 3.0ah lithium battery. According to what I have read, the DCA1820 adapter will not work with this battery. Anyone have any experience with this?
  2. Thought so, the link you posted on the first page said it was and got me confused. Is there a brushless 6 1/2" version?
  3. I am confused about the dcs393b whether it is brushless or not. In the link posted on the first page for the dcs393b, it says it is brushless. But most other places say it isn't.
  4. From what I have seen, the 6 1/2" version is not brushlesss unless I missed something NVM about that, seems the dcs393 is brushless. Some places doesn't say that.
  5. That set listed there is the DCK494p2 set. So if I want the brushless circ saw, does it have to be the 7 1/4" version? This set here comes with the 5.0ah batteries, correct? https://www.ebay.com/itm/163406945221?ul_noapp=true
  6. Ok that is what I thought. Are there any sets that have the brushless hammer drill along with the brushless impact driver, circ saw and sawzall?
  7. I found this set on home depot website. https://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-20-Volt-MAX-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-Brushless-Combo-Kit-2-Tool-w-FLEXVOLT-and-20V-Batteries-Bonus-Circ-Saw-and-Recip-Saw-DCK299D1T1W391380/303219056 On the saws that come with this, are those brushless? From what I have seen, they are not.
  8. According to dewalts website, the dcd791 has a metal ratcheting chuck, guessing that is different than the carbide chuck on the dcd991 and 996. I am looking at the DCK484D2 set which has the dcd791 drill. Looking to buy a 20v set with drill, impact driver, circ saw and sawzall and a flashlight would be nice
  9. Nice review on that drill. Trying to find out if the non hammer drill is actually built different than the hammer drill. Would not be using the hammer part that often, 99% of the time, would be just drilling. Having said that, would the non hammer drill last just as long?
  10. When it comes to dewalt 20v brushless drills, are there any differences between hammer and non hammer besides the obvious hammer part? Are the hammer drills built heavier overall?
  11. Trying to decide if I want to get the hammer drill version. It will rarely get used but at same time, if there comes a time I need to drill a few small holes in concrete, I would be able to. But also looks like the sets with the hammer drill are more expensive.
  12. Ok ty for the info. Are the hammer drill versions built more heavy duty?
  13. Are compact saws built any less durable or reliable than non compact saws? Besides the size difference, what are the differences between a compact and non compact saw? While looking at sets, I thought about something. Does any company have the option where you can put together the set you want? I looked on dewalt but didn't notice anything like that.
  14. What set would that be? In the current set I have, I do have the hammer drill but have not had to use the hammer part very often at all. I could get by without having that unless it is built heavier than the regular version. If I want to go with 5.0ah, would I be better buying a 5.0ah set or buying a 2.0ah set, turn around and sell the 2.0ah batteries and buy 5.0ah batteries?
  15. I didn't realize that about the voltage and hate how companies do stuff like that. Guess I will have to decide if the brushless set is worth the extra cost for what I do with them. Do like the sound of no brushes to wear out which I would guess the tool would last longer. They will not get used daily but will be used often. The drill and circ saw will be the most commonly used items. Also thought about getting a 20v adapter to use on my old 18v tools but the circ saw has an issue but also possible that the battery could be the issue as well, it's getting weak and
